From what I can tell, there is no fee for using this platform. You do need to request a trial, which I did not do.


Edmodo is an educational technology company offering a communication, collaboration, and coaching platform to K-12 schools and teachers. The Edmodo network enables teachers to share content, distribute quizzes, assignments, and manage communication with students, colleagues, and parents.

From what I can tell, there is no fee, and it looks easy to set up and use. They include videos on how to go through the steps which are always helpful.
